Members of the U.S. armed forces serve our country with honor and distinction, in some cases putting themselves in harm’s way to protect the freedoms many of us take for granted. The team at Willy’s boasts several former military members, including COO Joe Ippolito, who served as a Military Police Officer in the Marine Corps.
Jacob Finton, a team member from the Roswell location, never forgot the core values of honor and family the Marine Corps instilled in him. He loves working at Willy’s because it’s an organization that shares those same values.
It’s no surprise, then, that Willy’s wants to celebrate military members and their families by offering a 20% discount throughout Military Family Month.
What Is Military Family Month?
Most people know that Veteran’s Day falls in November annually, but you may not realize that the entire month is dedicated to honoring the sacrifices made by military families. Since 1996, Military Family Month has served to acknowledge the fact that not only military members give something special to this country.
Many military families contend with extended periods of separation. They may be called upon to move frequently, leaving them to cope with the stresses of creating a new home and integrating into a new community, knowing they may have to uproot again at any time.
Spouses, children, and other family members are called upon to sacrifice in different ways than members of the U.S. armed forces, but they deserve recognition for the important role they play, and that is the basis of Military Family Month.
Willy’s Gives Back to Military Members and Their Families
To honor the sacrifices made by members of the military and their families, Willy’s is offering a 20% discount to active duty, reserve, and retired members of the U.S. armed forces as well as up to six members of their immediate families. Guests must be in uniform or present a valid military ID to take advantage of this discount.
Whether you’re currently serving, you’re on reserve, or you’re a veteran, Willy’s wants to thank you for your service and your family’s sacrifices. Let us treat you to a delicious, discounted meal during the month of November to show our gratitude.
